1 To God the anthem raising,
Sing, Christians, great and small;
Sing out, his goodness praising,
Oh, thank him, one and all!
Behold how God this year,
Which now is safely ended,
Has in his love befriended
His children far and near.

2 Let us consider rightly
His mercies manifold,
And let us not think lightly
Of all his gifts untold.
Let thankfulness recall
How God this year has led us,
How he has clothed and fed us,
The great ones and the small.

3 To church and state he granted
His peace in ev'ry place;
His vineyard he has planted
Among us by his grace.
His ever-bounteous hand
Prosperity has given
And want and famine driven
From this our native land.

4 O Father, Lord of heaven,
For all your gifts of love
Which you to us have given
We lift our thanks above.
In Jesus' name we here,
To you our prayers addressing,
Still ask you for your blessing:
Grant us a joyful year.
